Ford Expects Four Consecutive Years of Best-Selling Car Brand

Best-Selling Car Brand

Best-Selling Car BrandWhen you’ve one something four years in a row, it’s usually expected that your winning streak would continue for a fifth. With 2013 retail sales up 15% year-to-date, Ford is once again expecting to keep its best-selling vehicle brand title in the U.S. for the fifth year running.

“The great news is that we are not overly reliant on any one segment—we’re seeing double-digit sales growth in cars, trucks and utilities,” said John Felice, vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service. “The Ford brand has had more retail share growth than any other brand in the country, with our most significant gains coming from import-dominated coastal markets. With 16 launches next year, we’re looking to keep our sales momentum going.”

With the lead Ford has over Toyota widening by the second, reaching over 396,041 vehicles through November, there’s not much reason for the American carmaker to feel threatened. Ford is not only the best-selling utility brand, but Ford Escape, Explorer, and hybrid vehicles are all increasing. The all-new Ford C-Max hybrid alone is drawing almost half of its customers from foreign car brands.

What do you think of Ford’s chances of being named the best-selling car brand for the fifth year in a row? Share your thoughts below!

How to Cope with Rising Gas Prices

Filling a Gas Tank

Sometimes it feels as though there is no rhyme or reason behind the rise and fall of gas prices. The prices seem to always take two or three steps forward and then just one step back. But we can be sure that the days of cheap gas are long gone.

So, what do you do when the money you spend on gas is squeezing your entire budget? Here are a few simple ways to save money at the pump.

  • One of the biggest impacts on fuel economy is driving style. According to Edmunds.com, calm driving, as opposed to aggressive driving with fast lane changes and hard braking, can improve your fuel efficiency by 35 percent!
  • Drive less. If you have any coworkers who live near you, see if you can work out a carpool and take turns driving. Also, if your family loves to take long weekend drives, you might want to find another way to enjoy your time together.
  • You can save money on gas by using sites such as Gasbuddy.com to find the cheapest price. However, don’t drive across town to save a penny. You can also see if any of your local grocery stores offer fuel savings through loyalty cards. Membership stores, like Sam’s Club, often have less expensive fuel.

If you are in the market for a new more fuel-efficient car, Ford has two 2014 models on the EPA’s list of the top 10 most fuel efficient vehicles. These include the 2014 Ford Focus Electric and the 2014 Ford Fusion Energi. Come visit us at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford and we’ll show you are full lineup of fuel-efficient vehicles.

Ford and Coca-Cola Team for PlantBottle Tech Fusion Energi

Ford and Coca-Cola Team for PlantBottle Tech Fusion EnergiThere can be little doubt that two of the most iconic American brands are the Ford Motor Company and Coca-Cola.  The powerhouse companies have joined forces in the name of creating exciting new products derived from renewable materials to unveil a sharp-looking Ford Fusion Energi manufactured using Coca-Cola’s PlantBottle Technology.

From the outside, this Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid is striking in a green and silver-accented paint scheme that evokes the PlantBottle logo’s color scheme.  However, it’s the inside that really shines: lime green-trimmed cloth seats give the PlantBottle Fusion Energi a distinctly sporty look that makes it hard to ignore.

Particularly hard to ignore: the fact that the material used to make these seats comes from the same plastic (polyethylene terephthalate, or PET) Coca-Cola uses to make its plastic bottles.  Using PlantBottle technology, engineers at Ford turned the PET into a durable, automotive-grade fiber that was woven into a fabric that is both more environmentally friendly and more durable.

“By using PlantBottle Technology in a plug-in hybrid, Ford and Coca-Cola are showing the broad potential to leverage renewable materials that help replace petroleum and other fossil fuels, reducing the overall environmental impact of future vehicles,” said John Viera, global director of sustainability and vehicle environmental matters at Ford, in the automaker’s official press release.

The 2014 Ford Fusion and Fusion Energi already incorporate a number of sustainable material innovations, including sound-absorbing denim material in the carpet liner, material equivalent to 38.9 recycled clear-plastic bottles (16 oz) in certain cloth-seat models, and 31,250 soybeans for foam used in seat cushions.  Ford’s ingenuity has already led to a considerably-reduced carbon footprint while delivering the kind of requisite comfort that drivers expect from their vehicles.

To find out more about Ford’s progress toward better sustainability, or to simply test drive one of our new 2014 vehicles, stop in and see us at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford today!

Revealed: 2015 Lincoln MKC

Lincoln MKC

The all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is finally revealed, and the bar is set high.

The MKC represents a critical milestone in the company’s plan to expand its lineup and adopt a refreshed design DNA. Furthermore, it follows on the heels of the successful 2013 MKZ, which kicked off the brand’s new design direction.

This time, however, Lincoln is targeting small premium utility customers, the fastest-growing part of the luxury market. With that goal in mind, the MKC will almost certainly be a resounding success. Its sleek, sculpted body helps it stand out among the rest, the interior design is almost overwhelmingly pleasant, and the performance makes you reconsider everything you thought you wanted out of the engine and handling mechanics of a luxury car.

Of course, even the best materials and most elaborate designs would not be enough to make any modern luxury car adequate without a certain amount of technology, with which the MKC abounds. A state-of-the-art audio system, standard Blind Spot Information System, Lane-Keeping System, built-in connectivity, you name it. The MKC has everything it needs to keep passengers occupied, entertained, comfortable, and—most importantly—safe.

The downside? You’ll still have to wait to get your hands on one. Production isn’t set to start before the second quarter of 2014. We’ll start seeing the Lincoln MKC in our showrooms at Shults Wexford next summer. It’s worth the wait.
